Ever wondered what Interop looks like?

Interop Las Vegas is the flagship event in UBM Tech’s global conference and expo series. Held each spring, this "independent" technology conference aims to "inspire" and "inform" through live demos and implementations in the InteropNet program, training workshops, lectures, panel discussions, keynote presentations and awards celebrations. This year’s event boasted the co-located Cloud Connect Summit, as well as information sessions across seven tracks: applications, business of IT, cloud computing & virtualization, collaboration, infrastructure, mobility, risk management & information security and software defined networking tracks. And then of course, there’s the trade show floor — a swarm of vendors vying for views. Here’s an image sampling from the 300 odd exhibitors on site at Interop 2014.
